If you're a woman over 50, you want travel clothing that works, and that means stylish, practical choices. Learn to create a functional travel wardrobe so you can pack light.
Pick a Neutral Base Color
This base color is what you'll build your vacation wardrobe off of, so stick to the basics and select pieces that are easy to mix and match. Capsule wardrobes for travel require multiple pieces that all go together, so creating day-to-night outfits is much easier. For your base shade, consider black, white, or beige based on your personal style, location, and the trip itself. Now, select two tops and one bottom in this same color.
Mix In Fresh Pieces
Once you've got the basics down, pack one solid shirt and one solid bottom, either in white or black so they're easy to mix and match. Consider the type of vacation you're taking. For a romantic getaway in Paris, maybe this is a ruffled romantic blouse you can wear to both museums and dinners. In the tropics, maybe it's a classic button-up to dress up for the night. Same applies to your bottoms. They should be practical and easy to match, such as dark-hued jeans or a pair of wide leg trousers.
While your wardrobe is primarily about practicality, you should also have fun with it. Add two colorful blouses that pair well with your neutral-toned skirts, pants, or shorts. Then, consider other colorful elements, such as silky scarves, a flowy maxi skirt, or a bold bracelet.
